Shopping for cruelty-free stick-on nails? Make sure to have ManiMe at the top of your list! Our custom-fit, stick-on nails are made to fit your nails to perfection, and with dozens of colors and patterns to choose from, you can always find a mani to match your mood and look. Best of all, they’re Leaping Bunny Certified — something that Chester the Bunny definitely approves of!
This internationally recognized program oversees a voluntary pledge that beauty brands based in the United States or Canada can take. What’s the pledge? To be clear of animal testing from all stages of product development. A brand’s ingredient suppliers and/or manufacturers have to take the same pledge, too. For consumers, it’s a surefire way to know whether a product is guaranteed to be 100 percent free of new animal testing.
Since nearly every ingredient, including water, has been tested on animals in the past, the Leaping Bunny Program aims to prevent all future animal testing. Brands like ManiMe agree to not conduct any animal testing after a fixed cut-off date. The Leaping Bunny Standard is the only one of its kind that guarantees a product to be free of new animal testing. All Leaping Bunny Certified brands (including us!) have to be open to independent audits. Plus, our commitments are renewed annually.
For one, the program’s sheer reach! Leaping Bunny has certified more than 2,000 brands since it was established in 1996. Back then, “cruelty-free” was popping up everywhere, but companies were using it inconsistently, which sometimes misled consumers. To counter that confusion, the Leaping Bunny Program decided to set the only industry standard that guarantees a product to be free of new animal testing.
Eight national animal protection groups (check ‘em out here!) form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes the Leaping Bunny Standard, working with brands to make shopping for animal-friendly, cruelty-free products an easier and more transparent process. And that’s something we can all support.
For starters, right here! ManiMe is proud to be Leaping Bunny Certified, in addition to vegan and toxin-free. Our stick-on nails are also damage-free.
